PORT COLBORNE, ONTARIO… The New Humberstone Speedway is returning for its 55th season of competitive racing at the historic Port Colborne oval. The season will officially kick off with the Registration and Information meeting set for Thursday March 6, 2014 at the Americana Resort on Lundy’s Lane in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
During the meeting, drivers are encouraged to purchase Season Passes and both the speedway and DIRTcar Memberships for the 2014 season. The 2014 schedule will also be released. The meeting will be in an open door discussion with the race teams as we try to build on the positives from last season. Drivers and teams are invited to bring their ideas and thoughts to the meeting.
There will be two information sessions. The first will begin at 7:00pm for the Mini Stocks, Pro 4 Trucks and Street Stocks. “Although we don’t foresee any Humberstone rule changes for 2014 in these divisions, race teams are invited to come out and discuss the upcoming season” stated Director of Race Night Operations Clinton Geoffrey.
The second session will begin at 8:00pm for the DIRTcar Sportsman and the Late Models. “For 2014, the Sportsman will remain DIRTcar sanctioned while the Late Models will begin their RUSH sanctioning” Geoffrey added.
“We look forward to meeting with our race teams. They are our best customers and they are the show. Being on Sundays we need to be creative and listening to our race teams will be the key to our success” Geoffrey said.
The on-track season will begin with two practice sessions open to all cars that will be competing at Humberstone in 2014. The first one will be taking place on Wednesday April 23rd at 6:00pm and Sunday April 27th starting at 2:00pm. The 55th season of racing will begin on Sunday May 4th featuring a 55 lap race for the DIRTcar Sportsman plus the RUSH Late Models, Street Stocks, Pro 4 Trucks and the Mini Stocks. Gates will open at 4pm and racing will begin at 6:00pm sharp each and every Sunday night.
